This datasheet demonstrates the analysis of lead, cadmium, mercury, chromium and bromine in polymers, compliant to ASTM F2617-15. The TOXEL and RoHS Calibration Standards were used to set up the calibration on Epsilon 5. The accuracy of the calibration is demonstrated by determination of European Reference Material (ERM) EC681k.
The TOXEL and RoHS Calibration Standards were developed and produced by DSM Resolve and PANalytical. A set contains the elements representing the RoHS restricted heavy metals and compounds together with elements representing commonly used additives and fillers. The RoHS Calibration Standards were used to develop F2617-15. ERM EC 681k is produced by the EU Institute for Reference Materials and Measurements, Geel, Belgium.
